" The Chinese have made language finer than the softest silk;they have deliberately cultivated their sensibilities until the sound of a petal falling may be louder than the crash of kingdoms. They have exalted poetry into the place of the angels and they have written more poetry than all the other nations of the earth put together....the Western reader reading Chinese poetry in a translation always fails to convey the sensuous quality of the Chinese characters, misses also the colour of the Chiese page." The White Pony...Robert Payne 1947
